Fortifying our Foundation and Future: Faculty Hiring Strategic Plan for CWRU

In the summer of 2023, President Eric W. Kaler and Provost Joy K. Ward developed a plan to hire at least 100 net new tenure and tenure-track faculty by 2028—a 15% increase for our campus.

This initiative aims to boost research and academic collaboration, enhance the vibrancy of the intellectual community, foster diversity and inclusive excellence and encourage cross-campus connections to solve the world's most pressing challenges. 

Building on Strategic Synergies

Deans of the schools and college have developed faculty hiring plans with the provost to invest in areas where the university can have the greatest impact based on its current strengths and partnerships. The plan includes areas such as: AI and Big Data; Biomedical Diagnostics and Therapeutics; Cancer Prevention and Treatments; Electrochemistry and Energy Storage; Environment and Ecosystem; Human Fusions and Robotics; Humanities, Arts and Ethics in a Technology-Driven World; Mental Health and Well-being; and Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced Materials.
